Have you prayed all night, till the break of day,
And the morn­ing light drove the dark away?
Did you lin­ger there, till the morn­ing dew,
In pre­vail­ing pray­er, did you pray it through?


Did you pray till the an­swer came,
Did you plead in the Sav­ior’s name?
Have you prayed all night till the morn­ing light,
Did you pray till the an­swer came?

Did you pray it through, till the an­swer came?
There’s a pro­mise true for your faith to claim,
At the place of pray­er, Je­sus waits for you,
Did you meet Him there, did you pray it through?


As the Mas­ter prayed in the gar­den lone,
Let your pray­er be made to the Fa­ther’s throne,
If you seek His will, He will an­swer you,
Are you trust­ing still, have you prayed it through?
